2020 Smokescreen North Coast Chardonnay

2020 Smokescreen North Coast Chardonnay

Excluding Sales Tax


Because of an early fire near our Alexander Valley vineyard, we sourced some great fruit from some amazing family run vineyards in the North Coast AVA (Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino). After hand-sorting, the Chardonnay was barrel fermented, and then the
wine was aged on its lees in French oak (12% new) for 12 months. 2020 was a long, gradual growing season that allowed for optimal ripening that brings out the great flavors in our Chardonnay.


    The 2020 is a racy Chardonnay that has a super fragrant nose with tropical fruits, pears and peach. It is a full-bodied wine that has tropical fruits, gooseberry, pear, honeysuckle and wet stone on the palate with great minerality leading to a long, satisfying finish. Drink or hold.
